Need to Remove Solids from Your Process Water?

Aggregate producers are burdened by sediment in their process water. Clearwater Industries wastewater treatment systems remove sediment and return clean water for reuse.

Settling Pond Problems

Settling ponds, also known as settling basins, decant ponds, or tailing ponds, are used for process water sedimentation. This process can be slow and requires a large site footprint. Mucking ponds and shutting down early to ‘let it settle’ kills production hours.

Sick of dealing with settling ponds?

Clearwater Industries dewatering equipment provides continuous clean water, thick sludge discharge, and minimal make-up water requirements. Our equipment and wastewater solutions help producers cut costs and meet regulatory issues by reducing and/or eliminating settling ponds.

Turnkey units connect with your sand and gravel wash plant process-water system. Discharge waste sludge to its final resting place and never double handle material again.

Polymer Make-Down Units

Polymer Make-Down Units properly activate, age, and dose polymer flocculants. Our polymer preparation units offer automatic and manual controls for a consistent flocculant solution strength. You can reduce settling pond management by increasing sedimentation rates with flocculation.

Clarifiers & Thickeners

Clarifiers can allow you to cut the size and number of settling ponds and reduce costs associated with pond cleaning. Our High Compaction Clarifiers can treat 300-30,000 GPM, achieve +65% solids by weight discharge and return +90% of clean water to the process. Portable clarifiers keep you operating wherever your site is or when current systems break down.

Want to save time and money spent on polymer dosing?

The AutoFloc Dosing System eliminates the guesswork of floc dosing. Stainless steel probes read the polymer and slurry reaction and communicate with the digital messenger, which adjusts dosing accordingly. The AutoFloc system maximizes flocculant efficiency, minimizes consumption, and acts as a full-time operator managing the polymer dosing. It can be coupled with polymer preparation systems and comes standard on our clarifiers.
